Pond Life

feather weeds stoop and sway as autumn
exhales caressing the basins placid skin

strider troops march dutifully
across the liquid tarmac while
bands of dragonfly couplets maneuver in
flawless aerial display

minnows breach and clap the surface

warblers chip and buzz in rapid exchange as
wrynecks prod and extract
insect delicacies from fractured tree limbs

cane toads croak belligerently
extricating grasshoppers from their
grassy homes

abstract patches of grays and golds
spill through conifer spines
caressing tufts of
bluegrass toupees

autumn smiles warmly on
natures urban sprawl
